Suzanne is a nationally accredited Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Sex Offender Treatment Provider whom employs evidence-based/best practice approaches to meet the needs of all individuals and families she treats. Suzanne is an expert in providing services to youth with sexualized behavior. Suzanne also offers outpatient therapy to individuals, families and couples, group therapy and training services. The use of art therapy techniques as both a means for healing and assessing need is the preferred method utilized by Suzanne, symbolic of her love of the healing arts and her commitment to blending theory, technique, and practice, to converge the best of two worlds – art and psychology – for eliciting positive change. Suzanne’s passion is founded on a belief that no matter what each individual’s history includes, he/she is ultimately responsible for personal decisions and future behaviors; therefore, it is critical that individuals be equipped with the tools necessary to achieve these goals through supportive care and treatment.

Jennifer grew up in a small village in the Adirondack Mountains. While the Adirondacks does not particularly serve as a suitable habitat for dolphins, Jennifer decided that she wanted to train dolphins for a living and went off to university to do just that. By happenstance Jennifer took the courses “Animal Behavior” and “Applied Behavior Analysis” concurrently and discovered that you could train dolphins to work with autistic children and the outcomes were pretty remarkable. Jennifer ultimately decided to pursue her graduate studies in psychology and has worked with diverse populations utilizing various modalities, but her strength remains her behavioral therapeutic techniques. Jennifer is a cheerleader for all, and is grateful for the opportunity to serve as IHS’s executive director where she is able to lead an exceptional team and cheer for the clients resilience and recovery.
